A recent CLOSUP report shows growing enthuiasm for and access to recycling services among Michigan's local governments.
Michigan Radio interviewed Debra Horner, one of the report's authors, about the findings:
"It’s not so much that there’s a lack of interest or a lack of enthusiasm for recycling out there," she said.
Horner added that there is support for recycling in urban, rural, large and small communities across the state, and that report shows there’s an opportunity for more outreach from state and local officials.
"In order to improve or expand recycling, additional funding (73%) and additional local or regional partnerships (64%) were the most frequently cited resources needed by jurisdictions that currently have recycling services available," the report said.
